    I LOVE this product. I use it everyday, and I find the scent and texture really pleasing. It removes my make up and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. I have combination skin and I did find it a little bit drying on my cheeks (not a big deal after I moisturize though), but it does wonders for my t-zone. Overall, if you have oily or combination skin, GET IT, but I wouldn't recommend it for very dry skin.

      I really like the fresh, soft smell of all the Earth Sourced products. This cleanser really cleans my skin of all make-up and oil and helps keep it soft and blemish/redness free. The best part is how effective it is even around my eyelid area all the way up to my eye lash line (but not in the eyes) without stinging. I suffer from blepharitis. This is the best for letting the lashes remain lush and clean and the lash line itself uninflamed and free of the debris those with blepharitis have to put up with.

        This product is NOT for dry or sensitive skin. After cleansing, this gave me the tightest skin I've experienced in a long time, and I broke out in hives from it not long after. Shame on you, Paula's Choice, for saying this is suitable for dry and sensitive skin. It is NOT.

            Comments about Earth Sourced Cleansing Gel - 6.7 oz:

            I have been using Paula's Choice products for years. It is expensive for me to order, and ship, to Canada, and even though the Canadian dollar is terrible, I have continued to be a customer. However, this product was absolutely terrible for me. I have always used PC cleansers, and thought I would try this one as it was "green" and therefore, I assumed, even gentler. This dried out my skin so badly that I actually got a rash. It also smells very chemically to me. For the first time ever, I am not a fan of this product!

              I was hoping this would be the gel cleanser to work for me, since it's recommended for all skin types. Unfortunately, it leaves my skin feeling tight and itchy, even my oily areas. Even though this isn't for me, I'd recommend it to friends with truly oily skin.

                Comments about Earth Sourced Cleansing Gel - 6.7 oz:

                This cleanser is perfection. I have combo/sensitive skin, and this cleanser rinses cleanly, leaving zero residue behind. I think it's perfect for combo/oily skin because it leaves a clean feeling, but never dry or taut. Other cleansers have some kind of emollient built in to prevent dry-out, but leave a greasy film behind. Not this one! This cleanser gives a clean feeling. No icky film afterwards. The gel suds up slightly, but it doesn't foam. There is no fragrance. It might have an aloe smell, which is natural and very pleasant. I see many people have rated it 4 or 5 stars, because it really is that good. To me, it is just perfection!

                  I have never reviewed this product, despite having used it for years. It is just right, takes off all the makeup and does not leave skin feeling tight, just clean. I have normal to oily combinations skin. That being said, I do not use it to take off eye make up, the skin around my eyes is dry. I use one of the creamier PC cleansers for dry skin. But for normal to oily parts of may face it is awesome. I hate running out of this stuff.

                      Having combination skin, I like when a product is "for all skin types", it makes things easy for me...so I went for it and bought it. I don't regret it ! Simple yet efficient, it's a nice and smooth cleanser, I don't see how you could dislike it. I use it everyday, in the morning and at night. It leaves my skin feeling clean without a tight feeling. Note that it's not super efficient for heavy eye makeup, so if you wear a lot of it, consider adding another cleanser to your routine.

                      Comments about Earth Sourced Cleansing Gel - 6.7 oz:

                      I use this cleanser twice daily. In the morning to take off my night mask and at night I do a double cleanse to remove my makeup. This is the first product I have found that actually gets all of my makeup off (try using a white towel to pat dry your face). I've used all kinds of high end makeup removers and face washes. I used to use an oil based makeup remover for foundation another oil based product for my eyes another gel cleanser for my acne and to remove the oil cleanser it was ridiculous this does it all. The only drawback is that it cleans so well it can be stripping. I have very dry skin. This product isn't designed for dry skin so it would be unfair to make it down for that it's just something to watch out for. I still love this product.

                      Comments about Earth Sourced Cleansing Gel - 6.7 oz:

                      Earth Sourced cleanser is a delightful gel-based facial cleanser that lightly foams with the tiniest bit of water and gentle massaging. After using it, my face feels fresh and very clean. The product is super for getting all the gunk from my first cleanse off my face. It doesn't irritate at all, and really shrank my large pores. I have normal to oily combination skin, and I think it might be a little too drying for anybody with drier skin or those who live in a very dry climate.

                      One drawback is the smell--I find that the "natural" scent reminds me of cleaning products from the health food store. The smell is earthy and "off", not at all fresh. However, I suppose some would find this scent is better than a chemical, glue-like scent that other cleansers have.

                      In the spectrum of cleansers I've tried from PC, I find Earth Sourced to be a bit like Hydralight in texture and performance, but a tad more drying. I would consider a full-size purchase of this product to have on hand for times when my skin is really oily, or the weather is humid. Nice stuff!
